We Must Show them the Way

Tonight, this place has once again been on my heart. Some days, I think of a memory or two but lately I've missed it so much!

I thought specifically about these precious girls tonight and the sisters that they became over the summer.

I am so proud of Alyssa, Myra, and Mae as they continue to follow the Lord. I remember their baptisms as if it happened yesterday, and I am so excited to see what the Lord is doing in the lives of my teammates, Ate Alex and Allison. He is truly such a good Father, and He is fighting for His children every day. 

My mentor described to the team her experience in the Philippines in the best way possible. She said that she looked and saw so many people who wanted to serve God, and they just didn't know how to get to Him. These girls are just one of the many examples of the work that He will do if we show them the way. 

"Where I go, the King goes.
Where the King goes, His kingdom comes.
When His kingdom comes, the power to be must submit."

Quotes from the Heart: Stand Firm

In what ways has God changed you through this experience?

God has shown me the lostness of this world. How I am obliged & honored to carry His name to those who need it. He has also showed me how He can work through me in anyway He sees fit. I'm not a person who gets in front of people & talks. It's not comfortable... but that was my whole summer. That's how we shared our stories. So, God had to give me courage to do this. I pray that when God asks me to stand in front of people & testify to His name that I will stand firm & not waiver.

Lessons Learned... Later On

I can't even express how much I wish I could go back to this moment in Laos heart emoticon
I think with trips like this, the most important lessons you learn are the ones that continue to change you months later. I wish I could go back and do things differently, and take every opportunity I would have to show people love and trust HIM with whatever would come my way. Someday, hopefully we'll meet again!

Khoi yak pai Laos lai lai lai!
